Kick-Off: 14.45

Warrington 19-man squad: Asotasi, Atkins, Bridge, Clark, Currie, England, Harrison, Higham, Hill, G. King, Laithwaite, Monaghan, Myler, O’Brien, Penny, Philbin, Ratchford, Sims, Westwood.

Warrington Wolves will be looking to avoid a fourth consecutive defeat on Monday when they host Castleford Tigers at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

The Wolves suffered a 30-10 loss to rivals Widnes last Thursday and follows similar lacklustre performances in their defeats to St Helens and Huddersfield.

Luckily for Tony Smith’s men, Castleford are also struggling to reach the heights of 2014 this season and currently sit 10th in the table.

Former Tigers hooker Daryl Clark is likely to face his former side although a nose injury suffered in the defeat to Widnes could see him miss out. Matty Russell is sidelined with an ankle injury for Warrington but scrum-half Richie Myler returns having missed the last six games with a hernia injury.

Castleford head coach Daryl Powell has named Frankie Mariano and Will Maher in the 19-man squad for the first time this season. Jake Webster is unavailable after suffering a head injury in the 26-12 Good Friday loss to Leeds.

The two sides met at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle on Easter Monday last year with the Tigers running out emphatic 40-6 winners. A similar result on Monday would see the Tigers leapfrog the Wolves in the table and restore the confidence needed to kick-start their season.
